Resurgence roundup, 7/5/13
Sail through the flood of information with our weekly Resurgence Roundups. Each Friday, we will share a list of articles across ministry tribes that our team has found helpful with the hope of serving you well.
“The gospel according to ‘me,’” by Simon Critchley
The New York Times Opinion Page
God is not dead in America. The actual idea of a god is live and well. But unlike your grandmother’s idea of god, this one doesn’t really have an opinion, is passive and weak-willed, and is the purveyor of a new type of gospel. Check out this article to see what type of gospel this god is preaching.
“Beasts, yet cowards,” by Joe Thorn
Bold—perhaps even beastly—proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ should not only happen on Sundays, but should take place in our communities throughout the week. Here Joe Thorn rehashes his time at the recent Acts 29 Pastors and Wives Retreat in Newport Beach, CA, and Matt Chandler’s challenging word to preachers.
“Jesus canceled your mommy guilt trip,” by Gloria Furman
The Gospel Coalition
Moms can easily experience guilt in their work of parenting. We all know that the work of a mom is never done. Thoughts and feelings of guilt lurk beneath dirty dishes and a pile of unclean laundry, ready to strike like an agitated snake. Moms, we encourage you to take the time to read this post and be reminded of Jesus’ finished work on your behalf and the sufficiency of God’s grace for you.
Here are the posts we’ve put out here on Resurgence in the last seven days:
- “Revolutionary parenting in the Lord,” by Jessica Thompson (“Know the Bible”)
- “Handling Scripture like John Calvin,” Elliot Ritzema (“Know the Bible”)
- “Wielding God’s sword in prayer,” by Marci Turner (“Know the Bible”)
- "Patriotism and Christian Engagement," by Resurgence
Jay-Z opens up about the absence of his father and his struggle with wanting to be a good father, expressing a fear that is common to many (perhaps most) fathers. Download for free Mark Driscoll’s Pastor Dad for some help and encouragement in raising your children well.
